Knowledge Planning

In the current regional exporting strategies project, the Michigan State University Center for Community and Economic Development project team is collaborating with the East Michigan Council of Governments (EMCOG), which covers the Saginaw Bay region, and the Eastern Upper Peninsula Regional Planning and Development Commission. The project goal is to research, identify, and take advantage of opportunities to increase exporting to Canada and other foreign markets. Such market expansion can lead to increased company revenues and new jobs. A world-class network of experts has been assembled to help guide and implement this 30-month project that is funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
